    The Knoxville News Sentinel has an opening for a reporter to cover the University of Tennessee football team.
    Please note that this is not an official advertisement for the opening. I just want to get the word out.
    Candidates should have a proven track record in covering a college beat, breaking stories and understanding network journalism. You will be the lead reporter with assistance from other staff members.
    UT football is the biggest beat and we cover it 12 months a year.
    We will be moving quickly on this hire with the season opener Sept. 5.
    Please send resume and writing samples to executive editor Steve Ahillen at ahillens@knoxnews.com. No phone calls please.
    Feel free to PM me for details.

    Wow. Another prime-time SEC gig. Like the Birmingham job, this one will attract LOTS of interest - and has a newsmaking coach to boot.

    Phil is good people and one of the few sports editors I know truly doing things right. This is a great gig and you'll have a great boss.

    Hard to argue with that. Phil's good peeps. One of a handful of editors who have truly embraced the advance in newsroom technology. They do it right in Kville.

    I'll be among the 100K in the sea of Orange for the UT-UCLA game Sept. 12. I look forward to reading the new hire. And this is a solid gig at a place that eats up the Vols.

    There are probably three SEs whom working for would be enough reason for me to go back into the newspaper business full-time.
    Phil is one of them.
